The Advantages of Working at BWS
Experience the Best in Workspace Comfort
BWS is conveniently located between downtown Bremerton and Highway 3, just off the main thoroughfare or Kitsap Way. We are within a couple of miles of the Bremerton Navy Shipyard, downtown Bremerton, and the Bremerton-Seattle ferry.
BWS is staffed from 9 am until 5 pm M-F. Call our main number if you need to talk with someone outside of normal business hours at 206-866-3382. We will answer if possible.
BWS has a generous amount of free parking for tenants and guests. Full-time parking in downtown Bremerton can cost well over $150 per month.
BWS has the building professionally cleaned once per week which includes emptying all trash cans and vacuuming floors in individual offices.
Building access is controlled by a PIN code assigned by management. The Deluxe Business Suites are lockable with individual keys controlled by management. Contact management if you need an access code or room key.
BWS maintains five washrooms for your convenience.
Washer & Dryer
BWS has a large capacity washer and dryer that can be used for business purposes. See management for details.
BWS has three kitchens that include refrigerators, microwaves, dishwashers, water coolers, and coffee makers. We strongly discourage the use of disposable plastics to help reduce non-compostable land fill waste. Washable utensils, plates, and cups are provided to help us with this environmental goal.
The BWS Sonic Wall® has advanced technology that allows groups of people to have their own private network (VLAN) upon request. Having your own private network allows you to collectively share your own computers, servers, and printers among your work group. VLAN service is an additional $35 per month. Configuration is controlled by our technology vendor, Olympic IT Services. Configuration costs are passed on to you.
Our network is controlled by an on-site Sonic Wall®. BWS pays an annual subscription for software configured directly into the Sonic Wall® to prevent malware and viruses. This type of security is considered superior to other options. In addition, we have configured our network so that your computer and phone can only connect directly to the internet or the two onsite, public printers. This ensures that there is no chance that anyone else within the building can connect to your equipment. You can’t connect to any other device in the building unless you purchase and we configure separate VLAN service.
